WHITE BOX GALLERY, HARE AND BILLET ROAD, BLACKHEATH

Window exhibition 17th March to 4th April 2021

(Due to current Government lockdown rules, the work can only be viewed as a window display).

Finding an extraordinary shaped old tree on a walk anywhere in Britain has always enhanced the pleasure for me of being out in countryside.2020 marked the European Tree of the Year Competition which was held to highlight the emotional connection many people feel for trees, as well as highlighting potential threats to them. Bearing this in mind, but 2020 also being a year of restricted travel, I decided to explore London based localities in my search for remarkable trees. I have enjoyed recording the unique and quite bizarre sculptural forms which evolve totally naturally in centuries old trees, and I continue to wonder at the power, strength and vitality of such weather beaten survivors.
